Posted on December 20, 2010

The United Motorcoach Association (UMA) announced that Anne Ferro, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) administrator, is scheduled to speak at the 2011 UMA Motorcoach Expo during the annual Legislative & Regulatory Update session. 

Administrator Ferro will present an overview of current FMCSA activities in regard to the motorcoach industry. The session will take place Thursday, Jan. 20, from 10 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. at the Tampa Convention Center, Ballroom D.
